About This Act :

After the release of her first album in 2003, Bonita continued writing her own new songs. In mid 2006, a four parts band was formed to accompany Bonita performing songs from her second album. But in 2008, the formation became only three parts band (BONITA-vocal,ADOY-guitar, and BHARATA- percussions).The band became interpersonally and musically more intense. They re not only performing Bonitas songs but bands compositions and some cover songs as well. They decided to name the band BONITA & the hus BAND (BNTHB).

This three parts band made their first foreign performance in Singapore, Esplanade Outdoor Theatre @ On the Waterfront Series Indie Asia on April 2009. BNTHB gained warm responses from audiences in these three days performances.Their volume-1 CDs were sold out in this event.

On May 2009 Jimmy Tobing joined BNTHB and made this four parts band even more solid in their live performances. Each of them have strong musical performance characters: BONITAs soulful singing & total expression, ADOYs percussive & tight-rhythm guitar style, BHARATAs solid & singing-like percussion style, JIMMYs powerful & eclectic style made this acoustic quartet total, intense, fun & joy in their performances brings up soul, pop, and folk nuances
